UnForm Document Management incorporates several features and components, all designed to work seamlessly together.


Print, Electronic Delivery, is the basic functionality provided with any UnForm server.  Convert plain and structured text, or PDF files, into professional and useful documents in many formats. Deliver those documents to printers, email addresses, and fax gateways.  A powerful built-in scripting language provides extensive capability for customizing the processing and production of all your documents.


Document Archiving, which provides a secure, extensively indexed, document repository, viewable with a web browser.  Document libraries are encrypted and compressed storage files, protecting the documents themselves from file system navigation. The document files can be virtually any format, most often PDF and image formats, but also text, XML, Office documents, drawings, and so on.  The only limitation is a 2GB file size limit and the ability of a viewing system to display the file when viewed or downloaded via a web browser.
Image Manager provides automated handling of inbound documents, those that are not printed by the user's business application.  Documents can be retrieved from email, file system locations, or user uploads, enabling management of both PDF and scanned images, as well as other document formats.  This component includes a browser-based interface plus extensive server-side scripting capabilities to provide highly automated handling of the inbound documents.  Note that in 10.0, this tool replaces the Windows-based legacy Image Manager.  The older Image Manager is still available for customers who have existing scanning work flows, but it is deprecated.
DocFlow enables document-based work flow scenarios to be created, for routing, approval, and more.  Capture data, attachments, notes, and draw annotations, as designated users manage documents through one or more steps.  Scripting provides logical flows based on conditions like document value or age.  Design proof of delivery processing with signature capture, photo capture, and user-entered data.
Design Tool is a browser-based component that provides developers with an integrated editing and test environment for rule files.  Using the Design Tool can save many hours of effort in rule set development.
